We are very pleased to announce that the London premiere will be followed by a Q&A with Michel Gondry, Romain Duris and Audrey Tautou.
When Colin (Romain Duris) meets the woman of his dreams Chloé (Audrey Tautou) they take a ride in a glass-domed cloud floating over Paris, and for their wedding day he buys her a perspex limousine. But their idyllic marriage comes crashing down when Chloé falls sick with a water lily growing in her lung.
To pay medical bills in this fantasy version of Paris, Colin works a series of increasingly absurd jobs, while around them their apartment disintegrates and their friends go to pieces. Michel Gondry’s film is based on the 1947 classic novel ‘L’Écume des Jours’ (‘Froth on the Daydream’) by Boris Vian, a rich text that describes many surreal, visual treats and allows Gondry to pour his imagination onto the screen.
And at a time when CGI seems to rule the box-office, he refreshingly champions in-camera effects and clever staging. Gondry has produced something original and spectacular – this is a film that needs to be seen on a big, big screen!
